First, thank you for allowing me to join your forum. I've wanted to raise chickens for quite some time, and almost immediately after getting some land. There's just something about producing/raising your own food, and being (somewhat) self-sufficient. I finally decided that enough time has been wasted and that I needed to kick this thing off. I just started to browse for resources, knowledge, tips, etc... when I came across your forum. I'm hoping that I can tap into the knowledge that you all have, as well as provide whatever help that I may have (which is rather limited right now). Thanks again for allowing me in.
